They should be set up by now and if done with the inspection, should be prepping away getting everything rubbed and brined and such.

Talked to the crew yesterday for a little bit. They were off to find a home depot and buy more wood. Phil realised when he got there that he had not brought enough wood.Turn in for them should start in about an hour so I'll bet he is pretty frantic right about now.

Ouch! I bet it was panic time! I hope he found what he needed.

Just got word. They took first in chicken, second in briskit and fourth overall.

Ribs were like 9th and pork like 16th

Phil called an hour before turn in and said the chicken was crap.

Go figure

Congrats guys

Hell of a job for the "26th" team! To think you almost didn't get in at all, then end up 4th overall is one hell of an accomplishment!

Home from the CT Cookoff
First of all , congrats to Phil and team. Excellent for your first KCBS contest.

From my perspective as Contest Organizer, things went fairly smoothly and I doubt the teams were even aware of the glitches. Mostly I got to just hang out with the teams on Saturday. There were a lot of new teams and it was a lot of fun getting acquainted with them.

The health and fire inspections by town officials were a little tough, but everyone passed. Things were a lot tougher than last year, which caught me and the teams by surprise. Things got a little hairy when two teams hadn't showed up by the time the inspectors were getting ready to leave. They arrived just in time to make it under the wire. No inspection, no compete. I'll have to stress that a bit more next year.

Judges meeting at 11:00 on Sunday - four no-shows. I had two alternates, and Linda and I filled the two other slots. I didn't get to hang out on Sunday.

No bottled water for the judges at 11:30. Panicked call to the Festival Organizer who was supposed to supply it. It showed up about ten minutes later. All is cool with the world.

No disqualifications. Scores still all over the place because of this year's changes to the judges instructions. A lot of new teams got called and took something home.

I don't know if Phil heard this but as he was walking up to take the well deserved trophy for chicken, his daughter turned to another girl, who I assume is also his daughter and said as she hugged her, "Daddy DID IT! We're going to Tennessee!" She was bursting with pride!

Congratulations to Phil, Josh, and Jackie! You guys smoke! You make your family proud!

Nope! Jackie is the daughter, James is the son, Sharon is the mom that looks like Phil robbed the cradle! I think the procedure is that Jackie never leaves the house without her posse!! :D

It's great seeing the kids getting excited about the Que competitions.

Congratulations Guys!

Two firsts in Chicken--You got the "Chicken Mo-Jo" going.

I am sure David will come up with winning "Thunder Thighs" for us in Mulberry!

You are a tough act to follow :lol:

WELL DONE!!!!!!!!!
